Mr. Em-rote: IVrlmps my election
eering tour on the l'ronlior may be of some
service to you when hard run by the elevil
for copy, if so, you are nl liberty to use
it, asl am rather religiously inclined, uud
anxious to aileviiite the misery of those
hard pressed by him. Well sir, you must
know I hat having the best interest of the
dear people al heart, I conserved to serve
ihcm in the lirst Council in Nebraska Ter
ritory, u great personal sacrilie-e, bill mv
lore for them, not office, oh no ! induced
me to forgo ihe pleasures of home on the
wide rolling prairies, with plenty of veil
sion and bulLlo, to be ceinlined within
brick nnd mortar walls, six'y days or less,
to make laws for the people to violate uud
the makers to break. 1 purchased my
policy with stores for a fortnight's trip,
utid started for the upper settlements to
let the people know my views and set niy-se-lf
light before them, like other smart
men have done to .secure their votes, ufter
several hours ride over a fine prairie
e ouiitiy, dotted wMi imply cabins, foundation-,
and claim st..kcs. I discovered a
pesky prairie wolf, attempting to cross my
ir. il. rccolli'ciing the old aaying of some
auihor, it w is bad luck to let la.n ai'coiu -plish
his purpose, 1 spurred Lyon nnd
headed him, Mid gave two shooisirom my
revolver, which made liiai drop his front an.l
rear extremities, and tru-lge uway at a
slow pace, so thought I, will my oppjnents
vanish on the night idler the election,
wlimi I have beaten them, as I am sure lo
do aceonlilig to this sign, besides I have
winning wiji for children, nnd home
slight nack ol taj ing line cousolling things
to father's and mother's; about sun-down
I fe-titid a hejuattcr's cabin occupied by five
voters, here I thought is my chance lo
make a bi-ginning, us so many votes all for
me might save the election; but how to
do il was the que.sliun, ns there were no
children here to pay my attentions loo, I
must reach them some other way, taking
for granted that self interest is the rudder
that steers mankind, absorbs ull Ihe liner
feelings of human nature. I told them
ihe y luul a nice place for the Capitol, il
liny only had a few more cabins, I thought
they would certainly get the county seat
established if I was only eh ctcd, and pre-
haps, the Pacific Railroad; and said I, if
you nre delennined to make me go lo the
Council, I shall try lo get joll all some
county offices, though 1 had mueh rather
stay at home, finish my cabin, and then
come tip nnd hunt with you three ov four
weeks. This wus enough. I struck th
right string, ull were satisfied. I was a
clever fellow, they would vole for me. I
diided my tubae-eo with them, and slurted
for their nearest neighbor on the other
side of the river, crossing on a dry cot
i on wood log uud swiining my policy. I
found a tall Huckeye, some dozen dogs
with live or six hopeful little rcsponsibil
lies, preparing for coon hunt, us he was
just out of incut, lie kindly invited mo lo
join him; calling his sou G'core, tuy horse
was- cared for, shouldering an acoll'wc
a'.artcd. What would candidates in the old
settlements think if they had to Lunt coons
ull night, curry au axe and gun, and trave1
a dozen miles on fool, through timber, tall
prairie grass and underwood, to secure
one voie and have some fresh meat for
breakfattj about four o'clock we rettirncj
to the cabin with only three coon, but

hunt, but I must confess, I was proud ol

ECHO TO BUGLE BLASTS.
.Vr. Eailor: Dear Sir I am not no
customed looppenring before the public
in the enpacily of a public writer, but, sir
I must beg the privclege of a short space
in your columns this week, for the pur
pose of noticing some of the aniiiudver
sions of your pugnacious neighbor the
editor of the "Council Hluffs Hngle.''
1 have been a subscriber lo his paper for
some months, and with Job-lil.e patience,
have submitted lo his barbarous muiil.i
lioi.s of the English language. hij base
and unwarrcnte.d misrepresentations and
reiterated falsehoods have borne with
his perversions of the eluties and prive-h-ges
of un editor but when 1
happen lo see my intimate personal
friends, assailed, misrepresented and abus
ed, 1 can no longer brooi such uiiocioiis
invasions of everything decent, respecta
ble and cortcous, without enteiing my
earnest protest, and expressing my abhor
rence of ihe man who is guilty of it.
Only a few weeks since the editor of the
Hugle, in his usual flippant and ungener
ous style, attempted to castigate the au
thor of a letter from one e,T the Eastern
Slates an extract of which wus publish
ed iu your paper simply because the wri
ter happened to allude lo the lio'orio 'S
course of the Hngle, iu misleading emi
grants, anel magnilying the advantages of
his particular locality, to the disparage
ment of other greatly more favored por
tions of the state.. Now, what ihtt letter
contained was not only palpably True, but
it elid nol even then tell half all the truths'
Vet upon reading the letter, his M ijesty
of the Jingle pretends to have his hair
spring sensibilities set to vibrating at a
furious rale, and assumes a most sublime
ly ridiculous air of injured iunooence
actually having the audacity lo claim truth-
fulness () and accuracy (!) for all his
absurd representations and gyrutives.
Truly, this is an age of wonders, -when
such a man pursuing such a course
can have the impudence lo set himself up
among respectable men as a specimen of
veracity ! It reminds me strikingly of
the pretentions of that othtr thing floating
down the river with an apple in the fa
ble. Next thing we hear will be pie d 1
rebuking sin. But itotwilhslandii the
editor of the Bugle resorted lo his lavor
iie vile Billinsgute epithets, in noticing
the auihor of ihe aforesaid lerller, yet ev
ery one who knows the author of that
Idler, as I know him, willpronoui.ee bi n
a courteous and refined gentleman, with
irood judgement and fearless in speaking
the (rmh. And were not iho truth spo
ken in that letter so apparent and well
known, 1 would take some pains to show
up the facts unJ figures us limy exist.
But 1 must notice one more flagrant n
buse of editorial privclege.
lu the number of his paper
dated the 10 h insl., 1 see au article Lead
ed, "The biggest thief cries thief lirs.t.
WoUts abroad," in which lie refers to un
ariicle published in an extru from iho of
fice of ihe Nebraska City News, the ob
ject of w hich upjear8, was to expose the
duphii'y und double-dealing of a certain
aspirant to a high official position, and w ho
wus attempting by false appearance und
representations to secure the uu'ragcs ol
the people living in the locality from
which the "News" cmiuules. That ex-
peisi;ioii was successful. The facts set
forth proved true and could not be rebut
ted. The c fleet was not that the individ
ual referred to who, by the bye, Scsms
lo be a fitl brother of tho 'ecMhination'
was run clear out of the Territory, and
immediately look shelter under the wings
of his "kim1red-spiril:' the editor of the
Huglo. Their accumulated tpleen must
be vented. T'ne'y c.imot rep'y to the tu-
tide by eilhcr pa
denying i's truth.
ia'ing ir nuoee-sfully
The prolific brain o
the Bulo man immediately suggests that
it must be replied to iu his favorite style
personal abuse of its author not only
oT its author, but also of those who were
active in propig.iting the fatal exposition.
So he elisenvers that Hnotl er ci:ucli of
.NciirasKa ury, nini nol mc t -nte.r ot Hie
paper, wrote the baneful sir! ie lo ibis jravc
him tin oppoi ltini'y to abuse both at ran
dom. He says lie is "not al a hiss to dis
cover that a certain functionary, residing
in (ilenwooil, was the author of the arti
cle," and (hen goes on to heap a torrent of
ub jse upon his devoted head. lie cvident-
ly alludes to tho Hun. If. V. Honnel. who
recently resigned his office in Mills coun
ty nnd removed to Nebraska City, of
which place he is one of ihe proprietors.
Wonderful cp'ics- m .gnificent percep'ive
faculties (!) has the editor of the Hugle.
Wonder how much the "combination"1
paid him for ihe discovery He per
ceives that a mnn wrote the nrtirle whose
style of w riting he never could have had
an opportunity of becoming acquainted
or ever of seeing ! Oh ! Joseph! Joseph!
how wise ! A brick would be transpa
rent to you !
Judge Hennef, I tiin sure never would
deny he.viug written the artielc, hue! he
done it. nnd if it is any pleasure for
the Bugle editor to labor tinder the delu
sion that he ( Hennet ) had the honor to
expose a rased, I don't suppose the Judge
will be elisposed to complain. Jiut it is
transparent to eve ry one that the Bugle
mans only oSjecl was to find a pretext to
slander, misrepresent and tbuse Judge
Helmet. The Hngle editeir goes on to ac
cuse him of having ''imported'' vo'cs to
"secure his election over Major Downs,
Ihe oldest inhabitant," &.c. What truth
is there in this statement? It appears
from the election relurns that there were
ihrce Councilmen elected from that coun
ty, and Judge Bi-nnel has the highest Lum
ber of vol os cast for that office, while there
were I wo others elected over Downs
they having less votes than Beimel.
